FYF Fest 2018 Has Been Cancelled
FYF Fest announced a stacked 2018 lineup earlier this spring, but now, barely a month later, the Los Angeles festival has been cancelled.

The news was announced with a message on the festival's official Twitter account. According to the statement, FYF Fest is being cancelled because the organizers "felt unable to present an experience on par with the expectations of our loyal fans and the Los Angeles music community." A report from Billboard, however, cites low ticket sales as the reason for the cancellation.

Ticket buyers will be contacted soon with refund information. Read the statement below. A slightly longer message with refund info is up on FYF Fest's website. It's been a rocky few months for FYF Fest. Back in the fall, festival founder Sean Carlson was fired from parent company Goldenvoice amid allegations of sexual misconduct.

FYF Fest had been due to take place at L.A.'s Exposition Park on July 21 and 22. The lineup was to include My Bloody Valentine, Janet Jackson, Florence and the Machine, St. Vincent, Daniel Caesar, The xx, Destroyer, Future, Car Seat Headrest, U.S. Girls, the Breeders, Skepta, the Internet, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Rhye, Mount Kimbie and many more.
